ABOUT

Palestrina London, the newest addition to the Turnell & Gigon Group of companies, carefully create the world’s most beautiful handmade embroideries collaborating with discerning interior designers across the globe.

Each embroidery is a unique work of art, which can be made to your individual specification. It takes many hours of dedication to create these masterpieces with exacting attention to detail as every stitch is sewn by hand. Whether your project calls for cushions, bed hangings, curtains, pelmets, chair backs, walling, screens or fabulous pieces of hand-embroidered art, we’ll take meticulous care of every detail.

From discussing initial working concepts, developing designs, techniques, threads and ground cloths, to completing your magnificent hand embroidery, Suzanne Whitehead and her team will guide you through the entire process.

Suzanne is an experienced Project Manager with nearly 30 years in the textile industry. She has spent the past ten years almost exclusively developing bespoke embroideries for prestigious clients. Projects she has worked on have included interiors and artworks for a private airbus, for private jets, superyachts, luxury hotels, casinos, world-renowned jewellery stores, royal palaces and international film companies.

The options are infinite when combining Palestrina London with Royal Warrant holding group Turnell & Gigon’s extensive wealth of luxurious ground cloths, colours and textures. Gorgeous silk damasks are just waiting to be adorned with antiqued silver and gold metallic threads or with coloured artsilk yarns.  Imagine the possibility of embellishing with semi-precious stones and leather or hand painted silk appliqué to create an exquisite work of art.

We look forward to welcoming you at the Turnell & Gigon showroom in Chelsea Harbour and to having the opportunity of sharing with you our passion for these exceptionally beautiful bespoke hand embroidered textiles.
